the children’s piano teacher is also a terrific photographer. she has mentioned several times that she wanted to borrow my daughter to photograph her in the past, recently we started talking about our cameras and she was asking some questions about the differences between my nikon’s and her canon and we decided rather then to talk about it, we would head to the beach and switch cameras and see the difference. it turned out to be a great experience and i most definitely learned that i am thankful for my full frame, but other than that, they are both terrific cameras. always a pleasure to have my daughter and her wonderful friend gabriela along to provide such cute subjects to practice on. once jaime has her images edited, i will post a link to her blog so you can see her wonderful images. i didn’t shoot very many last night as she was doing most of the shooting and i had a little peek at her images last night and they are so adorable. i can’t wait to see them on her blog. i had a chance to try the new solstice actions by red leaf studios on these images. they were perfect on these light and airy summer beach images. my daughter loved how they made the pinks especially pink. I used summer glow on some and cotton fields at about 40 percent opacity, after running color 400 from the film solution actions. here is a link to jaime’s lovely photos of the girls and her very generous and kind words.
just for fun
